to embrace. i previously -- above and beyond, we are investing $24 million additionally in technology. one of the things that amazes me about education and government in general, our underinvestment in technology cripples us. common core was decided on before i was governor of the state of connecticut. i was not one of the founders of the concept. i embrace it. based on scholastic poll -- 72% of teachers embrace it. the remaining folks are undecided about the issue. those teachers who have thought about it and studied it and have been doing their preparatory work do believe that concentrating on fewer things, but going deeper is the right way to go. you have the legislative package. you have a new evaluation system. it is not easy. that has to be made clear. once we get through this, we are going to have a clear road to higher achievement in our schools. we will get away from this concept that we have an obligation to distribute opportunity. hold ourselves responsible. several of our lowest performing school districts, we need to hold ourselves, the governor, the mayors, the parents, the t
plan we have put together involving people, processes, and technologies that has come together powerfully. a 24% of decrease in the estimated number of homeless veterans, a remarkable trend during that time of an economic challenge. usually, in these times homelessness goes up. v.a.'s mental health funding has increased. our budget includes $7 billion to increase access to mental health services. a year ago the president looked forward to the hiring of 1600 additional mental health professionals. v.a. has exceeded that goal and hired peer support specialists to augment the professional staff. one of our most successful mental health initiatives has been our veterans crisis line. many of you know about it. dod knows it, as the military crisis line, same number, same treating mental health professionals answering the phone, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, an example of our partnering to delivering care to those made. since startup, the crisis line has answered over 890,000 phone calls from veterans in need, and most importantly, 30,000 of those callers were rescued from suicid
to israel's security spurred the u.s.-israeli development of missile defense technologies to keep israelis safe from rockets and missiles. those systems and newer technologies continue to protect israelis from the range of threats that they still face today. i -- and ibama and think you heard this from the president in his q&a earlier today -- remain deeply committed. ensuringtermined to israel has the ability to defend itself by itself. that is why in fact, by any measurement, president obama's administration has done more than any before to make israel more secure, including funding iron dome, which i saved untold lives by intercepting hundreds of rockets that might otherwise have struck schools, hospitals, or homes. deepening our day today security security on anay ongoing basis. negotiating a new, long-term, never -- long-term memorandum of understanding to lock in long- term military assistance for the future. providing access to the most sophisticated u.s. military technology, such as precision munitions, the f-35 joint strike fighter, the v-22 osprey. israel is the only country in t
, but above and beyond, we are investing $24 million additionally in technology. one of the things that amazes me about education and government in general, and if you look at the rollout of obamacare you understand that our underinvestment in technology cripples us. core,move towards common having districts that don't have on commonlogy to test core was one we needed to address. common core was decided on before i was governor of the state of connecticut. i was not one of the founders of the concept. i embrace it. more importantly than my embracing of it, based on scholastic poll -- 72% of teachers embrace it. really about 2% rejected. -- reject it. the remaining folks are undecided about the issue. those teachers who have thought about it and studied it and have been doing their preparatory work are getting it and do believe that concentrating on fewer things, but going deeper is the right way to go. you have the legislative package. you have a new common core. you have a new evaluation system. i understand that people think they are trying to drink out of a firehose in the state of connecti
with the u.s. on their security issues. we have tried to transfer the technology and know-how that we have acquired from 40 years of fighting drug traffickers and terrorism. we have been fighting organized crime and we are now using that know-how to help the caribbean and the islands and central america, and we are now also promoting the integration through initiatives like the ,acific alliance with mexico -- a best-peru performing economies of latin america. we got together and decided to integrate more. things are working quite well. it he has become an attraction for many investors and for the world. we will continue on with that initiative and try to integrate the whole continent. therefore, i think we are doing well on the economic side. we are doing well on the social side. we are performing well on the international front. but of course, the cherry on the pie would be the peace process. if we are able to finish this peace process, then i think the future for columbia and the region would be even much better. the question i put to good people -- i put to the people is, if we have ach
claims. we also rolled out new technologies and several other electronic projects as well as new processing models for featuring cross functional teams. indicated that significant support would be critical in this rollout. on top of these challenges, they cases in that all excess of one near would be completed by fiscal year 2013. many months and mandatory overtime for its employees. while there are general concerns if they were able to issue decisions of high-quality, there are concerns that many of the older claims were highly complex. it regional employers have reported that these will pass over difficult cases and routinely decide to call easy claims first in order to meet this and maximize workload credit parameters. claims decided in the past quarter constitute a challenging workload. to hear about a focus issue which ties into various initiatives and ofhlight the clear necessity central office supports an employee training. today's focus is upon the claims at the regional office to include large multi-issue claims as well as posttraumatic stress, sexual trauma and claims i
, the technology here is available to any good physics student at pretty much any university around the world. and they have already gone through the cycle to the point where the knowledge, we're not going to be able to eliminate. but what we can do is eliminate the incentive for them to want to do this. and with respect to what happens if this breaks down, i won't go into details. i will say that if we cannot get the kind of comprehensive end state that satisfies us and the world community and the p5-plus- 1, then the pressure that we've been applying on them and the options that i've made clear i can avail myself of, including a military option, is one that we would consider and prepare for. and we've always said that. so that does not change. but the last point i'll make on this. when i hear people who criticize the geneva deal say it's got to be all or nothing, i would just remind them if it's nothing, if we did not even try for this next six months to do this, all the breakout capacity we're concerned about would accelerate during that six months. arak would be further along. the advance
think it's important for everybody to understand this is hard. because the technology of the nuclear cycle -- you can get off the internet -- the knowledge of creating a nuclear weapons is already out there. and iran is a large country and it is a relatively wealthy country, and so we have to take seriously the possibility that they are going to try to get a nuclear weapon. that's what this whole exercise is about. having said that, if you look at the history, by the time we got an agreement with north korea, they essentially already had a nuclear weapon. with respect to pakistan, there was never the kinds of inspection regimes and international sanctions and u.n. resolutions that were in place. we have been able to craft an international effort and verification mechanism around the iran nuclear program that is unprecedented and unique. that doesn't mean it's easy. and that's why we have to take it seriously. but i think one of the things that i've repeatedly said when people ask, why should we try to negotiate with them, we can't trust them, we're being naïve, what i try to describ
for financial aid. this has been greater than it is today. we rely so much on technology. do this through an online application that allows them to skip by questions that do not apply. needy, you cany import information from the irs. you're given a pass. if you move the time the we couldhave to apply, ask more complicated questions. you skip logic. they're still getting some rigorous questions from students on the cusp to find out if they are truly needy or have some financial strength that is not currently reflected. i think schools would welcome that moves. >> would you say that would also add to the expectation of success in the outcome for student completing as opposed to just accessing education? >> i'm not sure there is research that shows the link at least in terms of the financial strength of a family and completion. more told mean successes in the fact that application so they would have confidence of the financial aid package to know how much money they would have to attend college. that would be meaningful. earlier this year i had the opportunity to hear testimony from the insp
, technology, and for example, we are connecting every single school in columbia with broadband and fiber optics. this is going to be the first country that will be completely connected in latin america. >> interestingly, you don't look at the financial system. where would you put your money? home ownership comes up as number one as a means of building wealth. other people talk about more hands-on ownership up to and including gold. the idea that something that is not paper but has a physical asset could be much more important than what they see as a shakier market. interestingly, when we ask americans do you think the u.s. economy is currently in a recession or not, 53% believe that we are still in a recession. four to one percent believe the recession is passed. there are some ideological cuts -- republicanste by a margin of 56 to 40% think we are still in a recession. that pushes against the other finding of who is optimistic. households are not above 50,000 a year, yet you have is finding that is somewhat ideological that we are still in a recession. and withnce 58% to 36 democrats 51
